On our 25th wedding anniversary return to Italy, our first stop after leaving Rome was at La Palazetta (about 1.5 - 2 hours away by car) where we spent four nights in mid-October, on a high hill in Southern Umbria about a 15 minute drive from Todi. Our hosts Paola and Stefano Zocchi were wonderful; Paola's cooking was top-notch, and... More

If it sounds too good to be true it usually is - but in this case it is actually true. Paola and Stefano have pretty much nailed it: the welcome, the hospitality, the food, the views, the quality of the restoration of the property, the food, the beds, the bathrooms, the food, the wine, the service, the bedding, the towels,...

Stayed in May for two nights, and do not want to let any more time pass without reviewing this property. Paola's and Stefano's hospitality is superb. The rooms are spotless. The beds comfortable. The view outstanding and the location is quiet except for birds early in the morning. The food, especially the home cooked dinners, superb. Even though all these... More

My wife, Claire, and I stayed at La Palazzetta del Vescovo for 5 nights starting on 16 August 2014. Without beating around the bush, we both agree and are happy to state that Stefano and Paola have got the business of hospitality closer to perfection than anywhere else we can recall having stayed. We like to stay in quirky out-of-the-way... More

I have had the pleasure to be Paola's and Stefano's guest at Palazzetta del Vescovo. I can't remember I experimented a similar excellence level of service as I did there in all the aspects of guest hosting. Beautiful location uphill, Umbria-style completely remodeled buildings, perfectly trimmed yard and surroundings, vegetable garden to provide the kitchen with fresh products, negative-slope swimming...

I recently visited this nice place together with my colleagues and we had a great time. The owners made us feel welcome and catered to all of our needs. The place is a top resort and you simply can't complain about anything. The food is delicious and presented really nice and, as a plus, Stefano will tell you about how... More

We had such a lovely 5-day stay in September 2013, that we decided to go again for a long weekend - even facing the horror of flying out of Stansted on Ryanair at the crack of dawn. It was absolutely worth it. My husband is very very very particular about where he stays, and has very exacting standards, but Paola... More

From the moment we drove thru the beautiful gate and saw the gorgeous yard,villa and valley view we knew we had chosen the right place for our stay. Then we met Stefano and Paola and immediately felt like this was family. The villa and it's period decoration and the wonderful food made this the highlight of our 5 weeks in... More

The website of La Palazzetta del Vescovo in Fratta Todina does not do justice to what is a quite extraordinary boutique hotel in the Umbrian countryside. The 270 degree vista is breathtaking and the hotel itself is a masterpiece of thoughtful and tasteful design and decoration. The owners, Stefano and Paola, are charming, helpful and attentive hosts and Paola is... More

There are no words to truly describe this property other than "HEAVEN". This is a beautiful villa owner and operated by Paola and Stefano with some assistance from a a yellow lab named Chiaretta. The setting is breathtaking. There is an aura of calm that surrounds the grounds, the pool and the the villa. I have never been to a... More
